Janine Mick Wills
Tuesday December 3, 2019


As far back as she can remember, Janine Mick Wills, a native of Columbus, Ohio, has loved the Lord and the written word. A former pastor’s wife, she now resides in South Carolina with her retired Air Force husband, where she heads the ladies’ ministry at her church and fills every spare minute writing for the glory of God. Janine considers a Child of the King to be her most important title, but she also enjoys being called a wife, a mom, and a mamaw to seven grandchildren.

Her featured book is entitled: Juanita and the Outlaw: Texas treasures, Book 2

Book description:

Juanita López loves God and her family and only wants to make them happy.
Sent to Boston to become a lady and find a suitable husband, Juanita López quickly tires of parties, fancy ball gowns, and dandies vying for her attention. When racial prejudice attacks from an unexpected source, she longs to return to Texas and her beloved home, the Triple P Ranch.

Pete Murphy is hiding from everyone, including God.
Pete, a cowboy with a facial scar and a wounded spirit, arrives at the Triple P, wanting nothing more than a fresh start. He accompanies his boss to Boston, where he meets the lovely Juanita López. At first, he can’t believe that she could find him anything but hideous, but eventually he accepts she can see beyond his physical scar and past sins.

But Pete’s former life catches up with him, putting Juanita in harm’s way and threatening to destroy their budding relationship. Can Pete save Juanita before it’s too late, and will their love survive this obstacle of their faith?

“Do you think we could start over?” She held out her hand. “My name is Carmen Juanita López, but I am called Juanita. I am most delighted to meet you.”
Pete enveloped her hand in his large one. Juanita could feel the warmth of it through her glove.
“My name’s Peter Daniel Murphy, and it is I who am honored to meet you.”
“Peter? May I ask why you go by the name of Pete?”
His back straightened, as though her question had upset him. She was quick with her apology. “I am sorry. I can see that is a personal question. I will call you Pete if you like.”
“Juanita, where are you?” Reginald’s voice carried over the distance to where Pete and Juanita stood. “Are you out here?”
Juanita ducked into the grape arbor. “Oh, no. It is Reginald.”
“I thought you were to marry Mr. Davenport.”
“That was—” Juanita was about to say, until I met you, but caught the words before they escaped her lips. Pete Murphy probably thought her brazen enough already.
“You don’t want his company?” Pete asked.
“No. I do not.”
He grabbed her hand. “Then come with me.” He pulled her farther into the night and in the direction of the stables.
